  • 5How do I cure my insomnia? Any past-insomniacs care to share successful cures?

    At first I didn't think it was insomnia. I stay up late in the summer, causing me to sleep during the day, and then not be able to get to sleep the next night. Basically messing up my little internal clock, sleep during the day, up during the night. It's been going on for a couple of days now (I mean, I have it all summer, but the past few days I havent been able to sleep before 6AM) and I'm at the point where I just want to cry. I feel exhausted, yet I can't sleep. And the thing thats freaking me out is that I stayed awake all day today, swimming at a friends house and hanging out, but it's 3AM and I still can't get to sleep. I've gone about 35hrs without sleep as of now. I can't take it anymore. Any suggestions? If you've had insomnia of this sort, what worked for you? I'm just so tired, I'm at the point where I could just cry, this is so frustrating. Thanks, Caroline

  • 10Over a year since our baby was born and my wife is still totally uninterested in sex. Is that normal?

    My wife gave birth to our first child and only about 15 months. Our baby is healthy and well , and my wife is physically healthy . But your sex since before the baby was born has been reduced to zero . We both work , and both are busy . And I know that motherhood has meant a much higher burden to my wife . But she always comes home and tells me that, compared with other women She Talks To, who is grateful for the amount of aid they give to the baby and the house . We talked about the problem . It does not really fit the symptoms of postpartum depression . Since the birth of our baby , I've had a vasectomy , so no fear of another pregnancy ( we both agreed we do not want ) . She recognizes that her sex drive is gone , and she feels bad about the effect it has on our relationship . But she does not want to force something that does not really feel inside, and I do not want that . What are the possible medical or psychological causes of this problem ?
